Event description


Are you looking for a childbirth class in the St. Louis area , that gives you the flexibility of online learning, but also the support of in-person connections?

By taking the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you and your partner will not only learn the evidence for your birth options in an online class, but you’ll also get to meet in-person with an experienced instructor and other parents in the Edwardsville, Metro East, and greater St. Louis area who are going through pregnancy and birth just like you! This class is limited to only 4 couples.

This Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is taught by Shannon Lawton-O'Boyle, Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, Doula, and Evidence Based Birth® Instructor.

Momentum has recently switched to this hybrid format of classes for the convenience of our clients who want home access to quality Evidence Based Birth® materials and online content. We value that most modern families are busy and having the majority of their class online, with the added benefit of a local in-person resource is what you are looking for!

Will I Learn how to have a Natural Birth?

Evidence Based Birth® believes that every person has their own unique path. Instead of focusing on medicated vs. unmedicated birth, we focus on giving you tools and helping you learn the evidence, so that you can be empowered to make your own decisions! We do have a strong emphasis on non-drug comfort measures, because they have no side effects and can be used by everyone, whether or not you plan to use medications.

At the end of this class, you will have all the tools you need to create your ultimate labor and birth experience. If you want a natural birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to have a natural birth. If you need an epidural or Cesarean, we’ll cover how you can be empowered that way, too!

Ticket Includes:

The in-person classes, weekly Zoom video chats with your Instructor, access to your lessons online at the Evidence Based Birth® Academy, and a library of liturature and videos. You will even get access to Playlists to us for your labor!

One ticket is good for both the pregnant parent and their chosen support person. Your doula is also invited to attend any of our in-person sessions, if you have a doula!

Inclusion Policy:

Evidence Based Birth® is committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for pregnant persons of any age, religion, race, sexual identity, gender identity, or relationship status.
